Sunday Postcard art: cats

A monochrome postcard for Sunday Postcard art: cats, using a favourite Tanda stamp with versafine black - quote generated on computer.

Another card

This is another card using the lovely image from this week's challenge on Art Creations Friday.

This has been mounted within a distressed pink frame, so it's a second card for Lots to Do 4: 'you've been framed'.

The current challenge 16 on Cuttlebug is to add distress as part of textures.

So I ran a piece of BG sultry paper through my die cutter with the Cuttlebug embossing folder - I actually managed this time to overlap and not flatten the rest of it to produce the embossing across the width of the card. I then distressed this using one of my BG files (I'm glad I got these - much better than using sandpaper or emery board), added some Maya Road ribbon and the sentiment is a DCWV Old World sticker.

Today's first card

This is the first card I've made today, using the picture supplied for the 11th challenge on Art creations Friday (but I changed the colour slightly):

I used a frame, which is the theme of challenge 4 on Lots to do this week.

I also used three different patterned papers as detailed by Lythan in her great challenge 'patterned paper passion' this week on DCM's 'prints charming'. I find it no hardship whatsoever to work with three patterned papers, and the idea this time was to try to use three different manufacturers. The base paper is a DCWV (I think it's from ' although it wasn't on the back of the piece I used, so I'm not sure. The frame was from K & Co Hannah range and the torn strip across the bottom was from BG sultry. The sentiment on the side is from K & Co Brookfield.

As soon as I'd finished it I realised that this card also fits the challenge 24 this week on Cupcake Craft '3-2-1' to use three papers/card, 2 embellishments and 1 piece of ribbon.

The ribbon is Maya Road.
